What Do I Need To Grow Tomato Seeds?

All you need to grow your own tomatoes from seed, is:

Once your seeds are ready to go out, you’ll need a sunny wall, or somewhere that’s not too windy. Make sure you choose somewhere that gets a good amount of sun. Grow the plants to full maturity in 15l plant pots or grow bags. Grab a bottle of Tomato feed (don’t forget a watering can). Then you can grow your own crop of nutritious tomatoes.

Garden tip: If you want the ultimate in convenience, use a Hozelock grow bag waterer or the awesome AutoPot tray2grow automatic watering system.

Growing your own tomatoes from seed is pretty easy. You can start simple, with as little as a packet of seeds, some 33cl pots, pots, and some good quality seed compost. While the seeds germinate, it’s a good idea to keep the humidity level high with some cling film, or clear plastic bags and some elastic bands to hold the bags in place.

Garden tip: Tomatoes are heavy feeders, so keeping them fed and watered with the right tomato food is important.
